    Yes... what you want to search for is "Home Automation".

    There are a lot of solutions out there for this sort of thing.

    For lighting... you have options to have a simple timer, with no PC control.... options that allow you to control it with a PC on your home network... or even control it from your apple IOS devices.

    Below are links to several companies that offer this service.

    Thats the only wireless PDU that I can seem to find. You may be able to cable in a regular PDU, but the price on that one and the mobile features make it very attractive.
